Assalaamu alykum..


Update…Its a,months back sice i posted that update. have no computer and a phone only with little internet acsess and time.

Sadly our gilrs were never admitted into this islamic scholl , branch of ahsan ul uloom Karachi under supervision of mufti zarwali khan.

they wasted 1 month on empty promises being admitted and and we had to spent thousands of rupees for books ad on back Tags) in this institution nothing but slime up other backsides, running for positions and family politics and racism rules the day.

Teachers are hired by an unquakified principal not having any educatioanl background in leadership of a school, forget about an islamic school.

women awho wear make up, berelvis etc are hired without checking their standards of ilm in deen anad dunya and real qualifications to teach and graduation certificates of the teaching association.

the curriculum is absolutely laughable, no organisations, books to teACH ARE taken from here and there.

haraam picture activities, paintings on walls of animate objects, principals and teachers with make up, no clue how to teach.

Teachers and parents complains are brushed aside and ideas for improving this school and provide quality education are dismissed.

The female and male principal ( a married couple0 are seldom present in that school n are only busy going to umrah with mufti sahib.

Its all about making money in that school and the owner of that school has no clue, neither his uncle mufti za wali khan, whats going on in that school.

the principals never arrive in beginning  of office timing but close to instead of 8am.  often the female principal is not present several times during the weeek.



Uupdate… due to the Mercy of Allah and the dua of brothers and sisters, our kids joined a Islamic school about a week ago. still they’ll properly will begin first grade in most subject, and besides English, math, silence  in upper levels, maybe Arabic, but hifs and nasara are available to learn. They still want get real quality education considering the country we live in, but thats a huge step toward  a better future. i hope. his believes are still the same and and believes females  should learn in house everything form another women, not a educational institution, ie . I wish that our girls could became a qualified midwives to help other Muslim ladies, females in general. he propagates still that they cant learn like this as in  times of sahaaba they had no school to learn this. this can only be a statement of a man and a person who had no insight how complex actually pregnancy and delivery and postpartum care is which requires anatomy lessons as well, etc..  by  all respect this logic should be applied to madaris education as well and labeled haaraam as in time of the sahaba they were no madaris of the type today existed and no mass graduation or admission took place in form school teachings on schedule ..

too being told its believed to be  jaddo afflicted( me thats why i might state those things and iom not in my senses and my husband would surely never do such things isnt going to help our situation at all!! Im not insane, I’ve not lost my senses , neither do I make up what ive written before.

I swear by Allah, the books, the malaaika and the entire creation Im not a liar and my kids will proof witness to this facts and im  not stating this due to jadoo afflictions!

I’ve contacted local ulema, friends  who are ulema to just sit with us and talk and give us solutions and naseehat to our problems. but no aalim ever replied, no email from hardhat desai has reached my inbox or spam for months.i dint know why

so if this happens to muslim women and her children, what should i do? I can write down my whole live since conversion which was never a easy and pleasant one. but ill might be labeled a complete liar or ungrateful wife and muslim  woman which seem to ne he standard reply when a woman like me resorts for help as nobody is helping or listening.

Yes im ungrateful at times, l.ike most men and women and children. but im not pagal, not shameless, neither disobedient. im broken down .

im still waiting for ulema and their replies.i sent to local madaris and abroad and to hadhrat desai. but i don’t receive any reply on my mails.Perghaps its getting lost on either side


I request any Muslim and especially Ulema Haqq to provide me valid proof for the following claims as
I’m left alone defenseless struggling to provide my children education which my husband , who follows Hadhrat Mufti A.S. Desai.

Our oldest child is 11 Years OLD AND YOUNGEST 6. None can actually read, write or understand their own mother language, forget about other subjects and languages

My husband follows his sheikh in this regard to the extreme( in our marriage which brought much unnecessary suffering and sanctions , loneliness to the point of blank mental breakdown and severe health problem, mockery from tghe ummat, disatncing of Muslims from us, hassad, evil eye ,jadoo on our family..

And my husband , an aalim , and previous twice married man with kafir children and claims All secular education is absolutely haraam and every Islamic and secular school is haraam and girls and females in general are not allowed to receive education in any way but being taught cooking, cleaning, sewing and being a slave as marriage is slavery..

Sadly i think my husband misunderstands it quiet a bit.Nowhere have i read  hadhrat saying this type of stuff and i should show him  my proof in Islam and from hadhrat for me claiming that children, Muslims have the right of education and females are not  prohibited from education.

My husband states that hadhrat desai and sharia rulings states that all secular education is haraam, all Islamic schools all over the world are haraam, girls madrassas are haraam, only stiff plain madrassa education( which by the way has urdu peoetry and urdu language are included and a student has to have some basic secular education in math and urdu in order to study and be able to read and write)Even sex separated schools, even Islamic schools are haraam and teachers faassiq and theyb teach haraam.

girls in particular have no right for education and hadith clearly states to prohibit females from learning writing and reading as it will ruin their character.

Yes, Hadhrat Desai states  that the system of nursery and secular education and intermingling and certain kuffar related educational actions are haraam.( AKA KUFFAR HOLIDAYS, HARAAM PICS, VIDEOS ETC.)

Which makes sense and I agree

So my husband OPTED FOR HOMESCHOOLING. SADLY ONE MAN IN HIS 60’S( HIS AGE) CANT TEACH NEITHER SUPPLY ALL THE NEEDED SUBJECTS, NEITHER MATERIAL OR TEACHERS TO DO THE JOB.besides some math, or English which too has had been not done well and kids still lack behind greatly.

Too we have no relatives or i any friends here to help educating 5 children and helping with housework. too aim chronically sick, weak, exhausted and stressed out and due to some problems we have no peace in our home and all are under non stop stress. kids fight all day and clean for the most part and stay indoors.

I fought for years for the kids to be able to get out and walk and play to use their build up energy and get some light and fresh air daily, which i stopped getting once married in Pakistan to him.Only indoors ,thus many wonderful health problems popped up. And if outside than in thick burqa in black color which dioesen breath and draws the heat on me like a magnets thus giving me breathing and fainting problems for years..( due to injunction of hijaab too females are not allowed ton receive any type of education, as its an excuse to leave the home and in girls madrsaaa girls are only being taught how to argue and disobey their husbands and in laws due so learning’ and thus  their rights . He too claims the same about secual eductaed females and uneducated` females that they only argue and disobey to to their secular knowledge and secular knowledge is waste of time. an and hadith my husband likes to deny)

He , neither I, are skilled enough or educated enough to teach most things to children. Neither do we have the time , material{ halaal without pictures and written by Muslims}, neither any type of curriculum, lesson planning, printers , etc..

Too our personal situation does not allow us to home school and in 6 years of my husband claiming he home schooled , a little English here and a little math here, our kids , aged 11, 10, 9, 7, 6 cant  read really on their own( besides our son who is an exception  by himself, dont know even seasons of the year, month of the year, time telling, comprehension, urdu, Arabic,(arabic numbers, moth..)

i followed by husband obediently in all he taught me and told me. Putting our little girls and me in extreme,e hijaab, spending most of our times indoors, which is no way mentally or biophysical productive. Living in a hot, bad lighted humid moldy home. with growing children . I obeyed. We putt our  little girl in strict hijaab from infancy on.As taught be his sheikh and elders. By age of 2 their all wore burqa and scarf, Even in extreme heat and nights to sleep. Their hair is really damaged.. earlier.

sex separation as well from infancy.

Kept away along with me from society, neighbors. Not allowed to talk to them or play with other kids as they are all faasiq`, and endanger our morals and imaan and i as woman would only gossip outside in front of  door.

Thats also one of the reasons why i and children  couldn’t learn  urdu for 12 years of marriage.

I can elaborate here more but its getting off the topic.

When i reasoned they are illiterate and have right secular education and deen. He states  I’m wrong and the poof is that nabi sslalaahu alayhi wa sallam was illiterate and thus No Muslim need secular or any type of education to worship Allah.

so i replied as well that hardhat advised me , and other ladies, and males to read the books of the pious , aka moral stories of saints , fazali amal or behetsi zevar to get closer to Allah . And ladies too should be able to write ulema for qurries and how in heavens or hell can one find out about halaal and haraam , ie e numbers, vaccine ingredients, etc, if one cant read and write and inst educated about what going on around the world.

Females only have to learn how to cook, clean, have children, raise the,, sew clothe, obey and serve and please their husbands and in laws..

My husband claims our way of live, aka extremes in many points, are in absolute conjuration with hadhrat desai, but he still;  still until today shown me any letter that he stated or supported our way of extremes.

But complains about me and mistrust me and labeling almost all haraam. Beds, carpets, geesers, hot showers, etc.. All haraam and bidat and luxuries…. I will tell on request what in details.

I lived with my kids long enough under self induced poverty, extremes, sanction in name of islam.

I cant take it anymore.

Every aalim and Muslim calls for female staff in schools, madrassa,midwives, lady doctors, dentist, lab  and x ray personal, etc,  hospitals, counters, Muslim engineers, doctors, etc, etc.. hoe in heavens should this happen if everything is labeled haraam. if this would be truly the case than islam would have become a religion of stupidity and ignorance in every field.

the first C section had been performed by sahaaba, one of the first one to write and who m,ade the pen wasIdris alayh  isalaam, manty of the sahaabia were we eduxctae in medince, writing reading, hadith, quraaan

My husband too beilieves that its not good for females to become haafiz due tio their menses. so hr detested that our gilrs become hafiz. i fight for their rights.

One point to note is that he has been married before me and adopted 3 kidfs intio the famikly, /thiose children he put all efforrts in tio eductaed them asecular, deen wise and made sure they bec ame haafis and i have to hear that for years how much he misses those kids and how much he loves them and how much effort he putb into these kids. /fibnally that wife left along with her kids,

theyb were allowed to receive secualr eduicatin, befirsddmn others, hawere in an islamic school, giot deeniay, and became haafuiz and they werte niot in strict purdah is oin  our case, neither then wife. they did not wear niqaab, hijaan amny tyoe dsince age of 2 years, and were not kept indoors  and away form all as in our case.

wehn i con frionted my husband he said he had permission form hnadhrat desia as hadhrta desua saixc he had no right of the kids rtthus he shopuld not buity any hurdle between the wife and ther kids. ie vaccinations are haraa,m ans that wife wanted to get her kids c=vaccinate dso my husvband said they are haraam and he consukted hadhrat and he advi9ced let her vaccinate her children and dont let her decide between you and her kids.

so how much sharia right and zstatue did he have over this wife as he says he has over me , including having the sharia granted right over me to assess my emails, letters, messages, phone calls, etc to prvent me from straying….which i readily gave to him until i had enough , last moth

I feel a bit sorry to go public.

but i dont receive replies and advice from hardhat neither local ulema as they all block and dont want to interfere in other peoples affairs even though i ask for sharia rulings, help a woman in Pakistani and her kids will be always at loss and rights only on papers and men always right and supported

so i have no other option but to go public.

as my husband dont change in this regard at all and we waste precious time and he will be dead one day and m y son has tp

support 4 sisters and me and later his own family. How , though begging and selling onions while he got many abilities and interest which could be .

He says risq is fixed, okaayy. but in which way one dont know and we have to work for our  risq a little bit and dont put our families and ourselves into not needed sufferings!

May Allah forgive me..but i have no choice .We need help

Wa slaam

i feel sorry to state that my life since marriage and conversion is just like the real life book.. Not without my daughter.. Nicht ohne meine tochter. many of those fears and negative extreme report seen and heard in meadi has actually happen to be true. at least in my muslim life and m,y kids life

Mujlisul Ulama of S.A.

Assalaamu respected Hadhrat.
 Below is the answer of a brother and my questions on the bottom of the page. Could you please give me an detailed advice on the errors of his reply to my question.
I understood that henna designs on any part of the skin, especially at wedding functions, eid are  bidat and copying the kuffar in making temporary tatoos and tatoo designs and no hadith or something ever showed that the body of a women can be adorned that way and give parties.
Wa salaam umm mhammad
Waleykum Salam respected sister
I apologize for my late reply.
To the best of my knowledge, there is no problem with henna designs by women, unless there are some specific religious symbols like the christian cross or so on. Henna is staining and not permanent tattooing or engraving. Muslim women have used henna all throughout history. MAybe the kuffar have their own rituals and designs, but this does not undo our own culture. Please also note that there is difference between something being a geographical area’s general culture common to all people, and something being a specific ritual of the kuffaar.
Please note that somethings are cultural to a geopolitical area, like eating styles and dressing styles
If a woman has applied henna to her hands or feet, she should cover them from ghayr mahram men, as Allah commands believing women to guard their beautification. If she does not apply, she can keep her palms and feet blow the ankles open according to the Hanafi madhhab.
Furthermore, the henna must be applied to a sister by Muslim women and not men or kafir women.
Men can use henna on the body as a treatment if it genuinely and truly helps a medical condition, as in such a case it would be deemed medication or ointment. Men can also (and should if they can) dye their beards and head hairs with henna, this is mustahab and proven from books of hadiith.
The Shariah states that mahr must be paid at the time of marriage, but it is acceptable to defer (delay) it.
For any detailed discussions on mahr, I would advise you to please consult a qualified Sunni mufti.
Single sisters can beautify themselves at homes or in front of other women, specially those older women who would be looking for prospective brides for their sons. The rule is that ghayr mahram should not see a sister’s beautification.
Any gifts exchanged by mutual goodwill without any intention to copy the kuffaar are fine. Imitating the kuffaar and deeming it mandatory for the bride’s family to give gifts to the grooms family is a very bad practice in these times.
There is nothing wrong with a sister having her female Muslim friends over for a party before the wedding, to sing songs, make merry, apply henna etc. henna nights are popular all over the Muslim world. But in such cases, the men should not be present, or else everyone incurs sin. Also kafir women should not be invited to any place where the Muslim sisters uncover their hijabs.
I don’t have the specific hadith references with me right now, but the above is what I learnt from my teachers and betters.
Please double check any specific queries with a qualified mufti of the Ahlus Sunnah.
Allah knows best. May Allah grant us success.
Asslaamu alykum respected brother.
I do have a question.
Here in Pakistan many customs arenot Islamic and strill deep rooted and forth carried by the hindu culture and ancestors. I. e. The mehr is not given at the time of meher, but ate the time of divorce, and affordable sums are requested as mehr to show status .
And just as hindu culture. And demands are made by the grooms family and offers are made by the brides family to the groom and mother in low and female relatives.. Just as in the hindu culture.
Also the wedding ceremony and especially the henna designs on the arms, hands, legs, feet , etc, have been carried on from hindu culture and other pagan cultures to mark their idol worship ( i.e tha maja, certain african tribes, chinese body painting..) and beautification and so show off of the body.
Now her in Pakistan no wedding ceremony, which is marked by many bidat and haraam practices, and no
Eid is seen as complete and correct without the appliance of henna designs.
The female satr, like arms, legs, other parts, are uncovered and females run about without covering it up as it has to dry or the design which is very expensive is getting messed up. If they ever do cover up a bit here.
Only few know that henna designs resembles the tattoo making, meaning making pictures and designs any kind on any part of the body for beautification and religious ritual which are not Islamic.
Everybody cites asit is sunnat to use henna.
.But how? Like this and that males put in on their hands too? And certain medical conditions and the weather her do validate certain uses for both sexes. Right?
Females only on their nails and pamls without any design and for no special purpose and henna in the hair can be used only after marriage as it is meant for beautification and beautification is only inside the home for the husband.
It is the handwriting of iblees the accursed to tattoo permanent or temporary, with color like henna or tatoo paint the body and against hayaaa….etc.
Now to carry on such baseless bidat practices is it not also proudly propagating the kufr culture instead of proudly and stern rejecting it and propagating the haqq?
Is there any hadith or sunnat which can explain the layman, women the use of henna according to sex, and age and occasion backed by shariah?
Jazakallh. please forgive that i reply on the post but i do not know where to ask a question here

20 Zil Hajj 1434

26 October 2013


In a press report on the Western Cape High Court’s ruling  on 25 October 2013, pertaining to the legal recognition of  a Muslim woman’s Islamic marriage, the following inaccuracy  appears:

“The husband subsequently  annulled  the marriage under Islamic rite, but the couple later resumed  sexual relations.

According to the tenets of Islam, this meant that the annulment, called Talaq, was no longer valid.”


This statement is grossly incorrect because:

  • According to the Shariah, a husband has no power of annulling his Nikah (Islamic Marriage).
  • Sexual relations do not invalidate an Annulment
  • Sexual relations with the woman after a valid Islamic Annulment is Zina (adultery).

The hogwash in the report is due to the ignorance of the reporter or compiler of the report. The likely scenario was that the husband had issued oneTalaq Raj’i (Revocable Divorce). When such a divorce is issued, the husband retains the right of reconciling with his wife. In this process of reconciliation, the  wife to whom a Talaaq Raj’i  was administered has no say and no option. It is a unilateral  process. The husband has the Islamic right to unilaterally  take back his wife prior to the expiry of a period called the Iddat.

If the husband invokes his right of reconciling, the Talaaq Raj’i which he had issued is not invalidated. It remains in suspense  for lifetime. A man has the right to issue three Talaaqs. After administering one Talaaq, he still has the right to issue two more Talaaq.

According to the Shariah, sexual relations after administration of a Talaaq Raj’i  is in effect  reconciliation which is a revocation (Raj’at) of the Talaaq. It is not the invalidation of the Talaaq. The Talaaq remains valid lifelong.

Annulment means FaskhFaskh is not Talaaq. An annulment is valid in the Shariah only if decreed by an Islamic court or by an Islamic Committee/Tribunal empowered to issue such a decree. To secure an annulment, it is necessary for the wife to lodge an application. Only after  the due Shar’i  process has followed its course will the application be granted or rejected. There is no certitude  that the wife’s application for Faskh will be granted.

The press report also mentions:  “The man’s adult son from a prior marriage then forced the woman out of their home.”  If  the husband had revoked the Talaaq Raj’i – and this appears to be the case from the MJC’s letter stating the  subsistence of the Nikah – the woman had the full right to remain in the marital home. According to the Shariah, occupying the marital home during the Iddat is mandatory. The son had no Islamic legal right of expelling his stepmother from the marital home. Furthermore, morally too, in terms of Islam, the son had no right of expelling his stepmother from the marital home.

In addition, if the marital home is the property of the deceased husband, then the woman had inherited her share in the property and in all the assets of her husband. She  will share equally with her co-wife, the first wife of her husband.

Assuming that the man had not revoked  the Talaaq thereby terminating the Nikah, then too, the son had no right Islamically speaking, to evict his stepmother from the house. A stepmother according to the Shariah has similar rights as one’s mother. The same respect, dignity, concern and maintenance which the Shariah  has ordained for one’s biological mother, accrue for the stepmother as well.

The press report further adds: “The court found there had been considerable delays in the promulgation of the Muslim marriages bill, dealing with the legal intricacies of such marriages.” For the edification of the court, it should be mentioned that the so-called ‘Muslim’ Marriages Bill provides no solution for  ‘such’ marriages. The MMB is a concoction of anomalies presented  deceptively under Islamic guise. It provides no solution for the type of scenario which the Western Cape High Court had to deal with. If the marriage of the woman was indeed Islamically valid at the time of the  death of the man, then the court’s ruling in so far as the legality of the marriage is concerned is correct. On the other hand, if the Nikah had already ended in terms of the Shariah, then the ruling of the court is catastrophic because:

1.       The ruling  confers legality to a non-existent marriage thereby conferring the status of wifehood to a strange woman.

2.       The rights of inheritance are conferred on a person who is Islamically not an heir of the deceased. The consequence is usurpation of  the rights and wealth of others.

The only solution for matrimonial disputes of Muslims is for them to submit to the rulings  of the Ulama. There is absolutely no other valid and viable solution. The hybrid MMB concoction simply entrenches kufr which ignorant Muslims will believe is the Law of the Shariah.

Perfection of Women in Deen

[By Shaykh Ashraf Ali Thanwi]


“Be with those who are perfect in Deen.” (Surah Taubah, 119)

The way to achieve perfection in Deen is mentioned here. Keep the company of those who are perfect and accomplished in the Deen.

For men, it is easy to adopt this directive. Worthy of consideration is: How can this be achieved by women? This question is indeed important. The answer to this is that there are two ways. One is that women should benefit from those men from whom men benefit. However, this has its drawbacks. Firstly, men and women cannot associate. Secondly, due to pardah (hijaab rules) the Shaikh cannot have full congeniality with them. And without this congeniality, benefit is limited. And it is not permissible for them to come in front of the Buzrugs and abandon their pardah.

Yes, those women whose fathers or husbands are accomplished, they can gain spiritual direction from their respective fathers or husbands. However, not everyone’s father or husband is perfect in Deen. Thus this method also has its limitations.

The other way is for men to gain benefit from accomplished men and for women to gain benefit from accomplished women. It is regrettable, however, that there is a dearth of women who are accomplished in the Deen.

This leaves us with only two alternatives. One is for those women who have buzrug males among their mahaarim. They should derive their Deeni perfection from them. A woman whose husband is a Buzrug should acquire perfection from her husband. The problem here however is that either the husband is the slave of the wife, otherwise he definitely is an equal partner. Women do not respect and show honour to their husbands as required for a Murabbi (spiritual mentor). And without this protocol benefit is not possible.

Secondly, the wife does not hold the husband in such light as she holds another pious person, no matter how great the husband may be. Our Hazrat Haji Saheb’s (Quddisa sirruhu) first wife, despite being very obedient to him, insisted on getting bai’t to Hazrat Moulana Gangohi (Rahmatullahi alaih). Hazrat Moulana Gangohi asked: “Why don’t you become bai’t to Hazrat Haji Saheb? How can it be appropriate to become bai’t with me when Hazrat Haji Saheb is in our midst?” She replied: “There is no doubt in Haji Saheb being a Buzrug. But I do not want to be bai’t to him. I wish to be bai’t with you.”

I don’t know whether Hazrat Moulana Gangohi accepted her into bai’t or not. Nevertheless, just consider this. She didn’t want to take bai’t from Hazrat Haji Saheb, rather from his Khulafa.

The second wife of Hazrat Haji Saheb, we have heard, was exceptionally pious. Those women who saw her say that the only difference between Hazrat Haji Saheb and her was that Haji Saheb was a male whilst she was a female, that’s all. It is said that she understood the Mathnawi of Moulana Roomi really well. She was engaged to Hazrat Haji Saheb first. For some reason Hazrat broke the engagement. The marriage was called off. She married elsewhere. After her husband’s death Hazrat then married her.

So, if a woman cannot benefit from her husband and there is no one perfect in Deen among her mahaarim then this leaves us with another method. She should study the kitaabs, malfoozaat and mawaa’iz (books, sayings and bayaans) of the Buzrugs. The writings and sayings of the Buzrugs have the same effect which is found in their suhbat (company). Moulana Roomi (Rahmatullahi alaih) says: “When the season of the flowers ends then get their fragrance from their essence. When the sun sets, then light up your home with lamps.”

It is observed that Noor cascades from the speech of the Ahlullah, whilst darkness drapes the speech of the deviates. The words of the Buzrugs are straightforward. They do not use flowery language, but studying their works produces Noor in the heart. On the other hand, those who are not observant of the Shariah, no matter how polished their words may be, these leave darkness in their wake, regardless of what they say being related to Deen. Since the words are theirs, therefore, darkness is a corollary of their words. Whoever has the slightest spiritual perception can sense this difference without doubt.

In the speech of the Ahlullah again there is Noor which cannot be found in non-Ahlullah. One Buzrug’s son went to study away from home. He qualified in his studies and returned home as an Aalim. He came to his father. The father told him to give the bayaan. The son gave the bayaan and spoke on high academic issues but there was no effect on anyone. After his bayaan the Buzrug father went on the mimbar and related an incident that happened at night. “I had intention of fasting today,” he said. “I left some milk for Sehri. A stray cat came and drank up the milk.” Just this much made the audience emotional.

The father explained to his son: “Son! The effect of one’s heart falls on the audience, not the effect of words. You have acquired knowledge of words. Now let those words permeate your heart.”

It is not necessary that tears roll from the eyes as a result of the Ahlullah’s speech. Yes, tears roll from the hearts of the listeners from the words of the Ahlullah – those who have purified their hearts and saturated it with love for Allah.

In summary, experience and observation confirm that approximately the same benefit is gained from the writings of the Buzrugs as gained from staying with them. The benefit may not be exactly the same, but certainly close. Thus, if women cannot benefit from the company of Buzrugs, the sayings and life episodes of the Buzrugs are available. They should read these. Insha-Allah perfection will be achieved.

Even men should regularly study the sayings and episodes of the Buzrugs because not everyone has the time available to go and stay with the Buzrugs.  Aarif-e-Shiraazi proffers the following advice for these times: “In these times he who does not have a friend (a spiritual guide) should take for company the sayings of those who were madly in love with Allah.”

This also evinces that the benefit of a Friend in this Path can be gained in the way mentioned (by careful study of the sayings and directives of the Awliya). Thus, a person who does not have a Shaikh, he/she should make the kutub of the Mashaaikh their Shaikh.

Alhamdulillah, the question of how women can keep the company of those who are perfect in Deen has been answered from all angles. The answer in summary is that those who have a mahram who is accomplished in Deen should associate with him. Those who do not have such a mahram should search for a woman who has exemplary piety, knowledge and practice of the Deen. They should gain benefit with such a Waliyyah’s company. And for those who cannot find any of the above two, they should faithfully study the bayaans, sayings, stories and writings of the Buzrugs.

The bayaan focussing on women in the context of the Aayat mentioned at the beginning is complete. I have shown them an absolutely simple way how to achieve perfection in Deen. Now it rests with them whether they practise or not.

Q. You have mentioned that Pakistan is a non-Muslim country. Have you ever read the Constitution of Pakistan? The first few paragraphs in the Preamble read: “Whereas sovereignty over the entire Universe belongs to Almighty Allah alone, and the authority to be exercised by the people of Pakistan within the limits prescribed by Him is a sacred trust; And whereas it is the will of the people of Pakistan to establish an order:- Wherein the State shall exercise its powers and authority through the chosen representatives of the people; Wherein the principles of democracy, freedom, equality, tolerance and social justice, as enunciated by Islam, shall be fully observed; Wherein the Muslims shall be enabled to order their lives in the individual and collective spheres in accordance with the teachings and requirements of Islam as set out in the Holy Quran and Sunnah;” Do you think this is the Constitution of a non-Muslim country?

A. Firstly, it will be appropriate to refer to the country with the appellation Napakistan (the Impure State). As far as Napakistan is concerned, the couple of Islamically sounding statements in its preamble are all canards – false and blatant lies. The country was never an Islamic state from its very inception – from day one when it came in to existence under British patronage.

It was only during the time of Ziyaul Haq that a semblance of Islamic law came into existence briefly. As far as the Shariah is concerned, the constitution of Napakistan is a scrap of paper. The statements in its preamble are all hypocritical. There is absolutely no attempt to accord practical expression to Islam – to the Qur’aan and the Sunnah. In fact, those who do make such attempts are brutally apprehended by the satanic ISI and with the full approval and connivance of the government of Napakistan and its evil military.

Innumerable proclaimers of Lailah illallaahu Muhammadur Rasulullah have been handed over to the brutal kuffaar of the U.S.A. to enable those shayaateen to torture and brutalize the hijacked Mu’mineen who are subjected to horrendous sufferings in America’s black-hell detention facilities such as Guntanamo, Bagram and in many other place.

Do you perhaps know Dr. Aafiyah Siddiqui? Do you know what has happened to that unfortunate sister and her three little children? And do you know who perpetrated the horrendous crimes against them? If you pretend to be blissfully unaware of this sister’s case, the articles appearing in this issue of Al -Haq will shatter your pretence. The kuffaar rulers and the kuffaar security forces of your Napakistan will answer and suffer on the Day of Qiyaamah for the brutality they have inflicted and are inflicting on countless members of Rasulullah’s Ummah.

A few deceptive statements in a scrap of paper called ‘constitution’ neither transform a country into a Muslim/ Islamic land nor are westernized clichés which adorn the constitution evidence for Napakistan being a Muslim country. You lack understanding of the meaning of an Islamic country. An Islamic country is a land wherein the law of Allah Azza Wa Jal is implemented. Thus the Qur’aan-e-Hakeem states:

“When We establish them on earth (i.e. grant them political power), they establish Salaat, Zakaat and command righteousness and prohibit evil.”

From its very inception, Napakistan was not governed by the Shariah. ‘Democracy’ mentioned in the preamble is a kufr concept. The Islamic system of government is not democracy. Western democracy cannot be fused with the Islamic system which is the Shariah. The quotient of such satanic fusion will not be the Law of Allah Azza Wa Jal.

Whilst a parliament consisting of a couple hundred baboons and asses formulates the laws of a democracy, the Shariah was formulated by Allah Azza Wa Jal and revealed from Looh Mahfooz to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) who handed it to the Sahaabah from whom it has reached us by way of reliable and authentic transmission from generation to generation.

The system of government in Napakistan is a western system – the so-called democracy. A cursory glance at the law books of the country will convince any right-minded observer that the law system of Napakistan is the very antithesis of the Shariah. The judiciary is a kufr system – the western system. The courts in Napakistan operate in exactly the same manner and style as do the courts in the western kuffaar countries. Everything from A to Z in the judiciary is the kufr system. How can the rulers and the judicial officers of Napakistan be Muslim when the Qur’aan declares:

“Those who do not decree according to that (Shariah) which Allah has revealed, verily they are the kaafiroon.”

The whole miserable lot constituting the government and judiciary in Napakistan come within the scope of this Qur’aaaic stricture. Riba, liquor, gambling, zina, prostitution, music, haraam entertainment institutions, homosexuality, lesbianism, vice and immorality in general are the order in Napakistan.

Jinnah and his clique of British servants had inserted the Islamic-sounding terms in the constitution to dupe the Ulama and sincere Muslims. Without their support, perhaps partitioning of the sub-continent would not have taken place. Since there was no precedent of this kind of deception, those Ulama who supported the un- Islamic ‘Muslim’ League to achieve its objective of a separate state, had been ensnared by Jinnah.

Whilst the concept of a separate Islamic state was 100% correct, joining ranks with the fussaaq who operated the Muslim League was 100% erroneous. The Mashaaikh have said that a faasiq will sell you – betray you – for a piece of bread. That was precisely what Jinnah, Liaquat Ali Khan and the conglomerate of fussaaq and fujjaar who held sway in Napakistan did.

The idea that the new country would be a truly Islamic land governed by the Shariah was a pipedream – a distant mirage which had broken the hearts of the senior Ulama who had supported the creation of Pakistan. Lamenting the reality of the pipedream, Hadhrat Mufti Muhammad Shafi (rahmatullah alayh) sates in the introduction of his Ma-aariful Qur’aan:

“Fifteen years and three months have lapsed since I have arrived here. The narrative of what I have seen in this time is lengthy. The objectives for which Pakistan was beloved and pursued and for which everything had been sacrificed, the changing governments have caused these objectives to be nothing more than a pleasant dream. Effecting any Deeni change or substantial reformation via the government was incrementally being relegated into the realm of dreams.”

There is absolutely nothing to justify calling Napakistan an Islamic or Muslim country. A non-Muslim court banning pork does not transform a country into an Islamic state. The judges of Napakistan are in open conflict and rejection of the Qur’aan by administering ‘justice’ in terms of the secular laws of the country. In consequence they have eliminated their Imaan and come fully within the glare of the aforementioned Qur’aanic verse in which Allah Ta’ala describes them as being Kaafiroon.

Napakistan is at war with Allah Ta’ala since its economy is a capitalist riba system for which the Qur’aan declares war. A country at war with Allah Azza Wa Jal can never be an Islamic country. In fact, there is no difference between Napakistan and India.

In conclusion we must reiterate that when a government and its security forces who claim to be ‘Muslim’ hound, hijack and hand over reciters of the Kalimah to brutal kuffaar such as the U.S.A. for subjection to torture, then such illegitimate rubbishes can never be Muslims. They are worse than khanaazeer.

New law to set marital age
of consent at 18
Shoura Council would soon discuss the law

16 December 2013

RIYADH — A long-awaited personal affairs law that regulates family relationships and decides the rights of women and children will include an article setting the minimum age of marital consent at 18, Al-Hayat newspaper reported Sunday.

Legal sources said under the new law, a girl under this age will not be allowed to marry without a court decision even if her male guardian has given his consent.

They said the Shoura Council would soon discuss the law before it is sent to the Council of Ministers for final approval.

The law will be based on the 282-item Muscat Document on personal affairs adopted by the GCC ministers of justice in 1998.

The sources said the law, which will be issued in the coming few weeks, includes chapters on marriage, separation between husbands and wives, maturity of men and women and inheritance.

The new law aims to achieve parity between men and women in all aspects of life.

The sources said the law would cancel the right of guardianship for men over women except in marriages, where Islamic Shariah gives them this right.

They said the wife could ask to include a stipulation in the marriage contract indicating her right to divorce if the husband marries another woman and she has the right to stay in the marital home if a divorce between them has not been made final.

According to the sources, the new law has described the relationship between married couples to be a partnership, not qiwamah (supremacy of men over women) as it used to be.…20131216189654








Question: After request by the United States of America, Pakistan is thinking of sending its troops to Iraq to assist the U.S. army. Is it permissible for the Government of Pakistan to send its troops to Iraq to assist the U.S. army?




In such prevalent situation when America has oppressively captured Iraq, it is impermissible for Pakistan or any other Muslim country to send its troops to assist the American military. The following reasons make this matter crystal clear: 1- By attacking Iraq, the United States has displayed immense tyranny and oppression and has violated not only Islamic laws but all sound laws and ethics. Sending forces on its request to Iraq is the same as agreeing to its tyrannical attack, and there is no need to present any evidence for it being haram. 2- After establishing its dominancy in Iraq, the United States is asking various countries to send their forces in order to makes its occupancy permanent. From a Shari’i viewpoint the situation is as such that if any non-Muslim nation attacks a Muslim nation, when necessary, it is wajib on all Muslims to defend it. And if a Non-Muslim nation occupies a Muslim country, then it is wajib on all the Muslim governments to end its occupation as soon as possible and to achieve that they should use all possible means. It is obvious that instead of bringing an end to such a tyrannical occupation, making it stronger is, without question, haram and impermissible. 3- Even after occupying Iraq and oppressing Iraq with its military might, Iraqi Muslims are continuously opposing and retaliating against the American occupancy and they have full rights to do such. At such a time, it is fardh (obligatory) on the entire Muslim world to help and fully back these Iraqi Muslims. In this scenario, sending troops under U.S. command will result in Muslim forces being made to face these Muslims. This claim that the Pakistani forces are being called to Iraq to ensure peace is admittance that they will be made to clash against Iraqi Muslims who are striving against the U.S. occupancy. To help the Non-Muslim usurpers against Muslims is clearly against the clear texts of Qur’an and Sunnah. No Muslim can have any doubts about this being haram. Qur’an clearly states: O you who believe, do not take My enemies and your enemies for friends, expressing love with them, while they have rejected the Truth that has come to you – Surah Mumtahinah 60:1 The incident which is referred to in the verse is that Hadhrat Hatib ibn Abi Balta’a (RA) had only done this much that in hope that his relatives in Makkah would be shown leniency by the pagans of Makkah, he informed the pagans that the Muslims were preparing to attack them. (Sahih Bukhari) Even though the Muslims did not face any significant loss because of this, the Qur’an strictly warns against such actions (Tafsir Ibn Kathir v.4 p.345) and made it a law that any cooperation and friendship with non-Muslim forces which are against the interest of the Muslims is not permissible. In the same Surah mentioned above, Allah (swt) has further clarified this matter: Allah does not forbid you as regards those who did not fight you on account of faith, and did not expel you from your homes, that you do good to them, and deal justly with them. Surely Allah loves those who maintain justice. Allah forbids you only about those who fought you on account of faith, and expelled you from your homes, and helped (others) in expelling you, that you have friendship with them. Those who develop friendship with them are the wrongdoers. – Surah Mumtahinah 60:8-9 In these verses it is clearly stated that it is haram to help and assist such non-Muslims who wage war against Muslims and destroy them and such who helped these non-Muslims. America has targeted thousands of Muslims with its barbaric and savage ways and has not only displaced thousands of Muslims from their homes but has also helped Israel who is guilty of these crimes since ages. Thus America, without a shadow of doubt, comes under the command of this verse and this verse holds to be true regarding the assistance of the United States. Friendly relationship with the non-Muslims against the Muslims being Haram is mentioned in many verses under different topics. The following verse is a clear example for the Muslims in this matter: Those who take the disbelievers for friends rather than the believers. Are they seeking honor in their company? But, indeed, all honor belongs to Allah -Surah Nisa 4:139 O you who believe, do not take the disbelievers for friends instead of the believers. Do you want to produce before Allah a clear evidence against yourselves? -Surah Nisa 4:144 O you who believe, do not take the Jews and the Christians for intimate friends. They are friends to each other. Whoever takes them as intimate friends is one of them. Surely, Allah does not take the unjust people to the right path. -Surah Maidah 5:51 O you who believe, do not take those who have taken your Faith in jest and fun for friends from those who have been given the Book prior to you, and the disbelievers. Fear Allah, if you are believers. -Surah Maidah 5:57 4- In light of the verses mentioned above and many of the sayings of Rasulullah ﷺ, many of the jurists of the ummah have stated this principle that to take help from non-Muslims against a common enemy is only permissible if the non-Muslims fight under the flag of the Muslims and after winning the war, the rule of the Muslims should prevail. Imam Abu Bakr Hassas (RA) writes under the abovementioned verse from Surah Nisa: It is learnt from this verse that it is not permissible for the Muslims to take the help of the kuffar against other kuffar in a situation where after victory the rule of the kuffar will prevail. (Ahkamul Qur’an v.2 pg.352) Imam Muhammad (RA) states: If Muslims take help from people of shirk against another party of people of shirk then there is no hesitation in this as long as Islam prevails over them. (Sharh al-Seer al-Kabeer v.3 pg.186) On the other hand, if a non-Muslim nation invites Muslims to fight against another non-Muslim nation, the rule is the same that Muslims are not allowed to assist either of them. However, if there is fear that if such an invitation is rejected, they will kill Muslims then it is permissible to assist them. Imam Muhammad (RA) states: It is not permissible for the Muslims that they should join with one group of Mushrikeen to fight against another group of Mushrikeen. And if ahl al-harb say to the Muslim prisoners to assist them against their enemies who are Mushrikeen, and they themselves are also Mushrikeen, then if these prisoners fear for their lives from the hands of these Mushrikeen, it will be permissible for them to fight alongside them against their Mushrikeen enemy. (Sharh al-Seer al-Kabeer v.3 pg.241-2) All this is regarding the situation of joining with the non-Muslims and fighting against other non-Muslims. However, if the non-Muslims wage war against Muslims and invite other Muslims to assist them in fighting the Muslims then it is impermissible even in a state of coercion. This means, even if Muslims fear being killed by non-Muslims if they reject their invitation to fight against another group of Muslims, it will still be impermissible for them to accept the invitation even though he is killed as a result of this rejection. Imam Muhammad (RA) states: And if they say fight alongside us against Muslims otherwise we will kill you, even then it is not allowed for them to fight against the Muslims. (Sharh al-Seer al-Kabeer v.3 pg.242) Imam Sarakhsi (RA) says in commentary of the above: Because it is haram for Muslims to wage war against other Muslims thus it is not allowed for Muslims to do the same under death threat. This is like the situation where someone would say ‘Kill this Muslim or I will kill you’ (that to kill this person is not permissible even in this scenario). (Sharh al-Seer al-Kabeer v.3 pg. 242) The summary of the matter is that it is against the clear texts of Qur’an and Sunnah for the Pakistani army to stand against these Iraqi Muslims who are fighting and struggling against the tyranny and oppression of the U.S. military. This is also against the Pakistani custom and the purpose of the Pakistani army. And if God forbid such a step is taken then this will be a stain on the honor and dignity of the Pakistan army. 14 Safar 1435 – 18 December 2013

8 Muharram 1435 – 12 November 2013









(1)        Chickens are alive, in their full senses, when they are cruelly shackled upside down.


(2)        Hanging in this cruel upside down position, the chickens are moved swiftly on a conveyor belt at speeds of up to 180 per minute and cruelly subjected to electric shocks. Their heads, fully immersed in the electrified water, the chickens are dragged through the torture-trough. They are not tickled. They are shocked brutally. About a third of the electrically tortured chickens die of cardiac arrest (heart failure), and reach the slaughterers dead.


(3)        The limp, electrocuted chickens, some already dead, are moved swiftly on conveyor belts and killed while they are hanging upside down in motion. The speed of the line on which these defenseless creatures of Allah Ta’ala, with broken bones and legs, are moved reaches 180 per minute. For deceiving the ‘inspectors’ of pre-planned ‘inspections’, the speed is reduced to 120 per minute. Even this deception does not facilitate the halaalizing process.


(4)        The chickens pass by the slaughterers at great speed – up to 60 chickens per minute per slaughterer. Slaughterers, wearing blood-splattered face masks are required to distinguish between living and dead chickens at this speed which allows one or one and half second for slaughtering a chicken in swift motion. The impossibility of the killer’s task is self-evident.


(5)        The slaughterer is supposed to take hold of the chicken’s head, recite the full Tasmiah and slaughter all four neck vessels (the gullet, windpipe and the two jugular veins) ALL IN ONE SECOND or one and half second FLAT when the line operates at top speed.


(6)        Many chickens traveling on the conveyor belt slip pass the grasp of the slaughterers due to the speed at which they arrive. These chickens enter the scalding tank alive and are scalded to death. For pre-planned ‘inspections’, the temperature of the water is lowered.


(7)        Numerous chickens are not slaughteredDue to the speed, an incision is made in the neck and some of the neck vessels remain intact. This act has been termed Shareetatus Shaitaan by Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). The chickens thus die a horrible death and are scalded to perish in the hot water.


(8)        About one third dead chickens are slaughtered. It is impossible under the appalling conditions for the slaughters to accurately determine which chickens are alive and which are dead. The electrocuted chickens and the dead chickens cannot always be distinguished in the miserable conditions in which the slaughterers work.


(9)        Supervision is a vile myth. There is no such degree of supervision which could be acceptable to the Shariah. The entire killing operation is treated as a ‘military’ secret. Its revelation petrifies SANHA, hence only pre-planned ‘inspections’ and that too by Sanha’s molvi supporters who advocate Sanha’s cause not Rasulullah’s Cause.


(10)      Slaughterers who had complained of these haraam irregularities were dismissed.


(11)      Slaughterers, from time to time, voice and report their grievances which are swept under the tons of diseased chicken carrion which SANHA halaalizes and which the Muslim community eats with relish.


(12)      SANHA’S two ex-Early Bird ‘supervisors’ resigned on account of malpractices which prevent production of halaal chickens.





 Besides these Primary Reasons for the carrion chickens being haraam, there are numerous ancillary factors – horrible and brutal practices associated with the broiler industry from the day the chickens are hatched. These will, Insha’Allah be fully explained in future articles.








Once when Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu) saw a Yahudi harshly dragging a goat to the place of slaughter, he said: “Lead it to its death beautifully (Sookan jameelan).” Can any Muslim accept a system which brutally drags and shocks to into paralysis, not unconsciousness, and even into death chickens with their heads submerged in electrified fecal water? Before consuming the HARAAM CARRION which SANHA has halaalized, consult your Imaan and reflect on the pronouncements of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).






Allah Ta’ala commanding His Rusul and Ambiya (Messengers) with the consumption of absolutely halaal and wholesome food, says in the Qur’aan Shareef: “O Messengers! Eat Tayyibaat (halaal and wholesome food), and practice virtuous deeds. Verily, I am aware of your deeds.”(Aayat 51, Surah Noor). In this aayat as well as in other verses, the Qur’aan Majeed propounds the consumption of halaal-tayyib food as the basis for true virtue. Without this basis, virtuous deed will be an outer façade of piety devoid of reality.


     Commenting on the imperativeness of halaal-tayyib food, Hadhrat Hasan Basri (rahmatullah alayh) said: “If a man, despite having acquired total Knowledge (i.e. he has vast knowledge) and having become as thin as a rake due to his total engrossment in ibaadat, does not investigate the source of his food, and remains unconcerned with what he ingests into his stomach whether haraam or halaal, Allah does not accept a single act of his ibaadat.”

The Majlis
24 Zil Hajj 1434 – 30 October 2013

SANHA, the leading Maitah (Carrion) halaalizer in South Africa has announced its annual general meeting to be held on 10th November 2013. ‘Mufti’ Zubair Bayat, the head of the miscreant Darush Shaitaan which he has dubbed ‘Darul Ihasan’, and which was set up specifically as an opposition to the Jamiatul Ulama KZN, has joined forces with the Carrion Halaalizer in a vile attempt to bolster and accord credibility to SANHA’s carrion industry. SANHA’s reputation is in tatters and is reeking with the devilish stench of carrion chickens. Zubair Bayat, most probably motivated by pecuniary and egoistic designs (hubb-e-maal and hubb-e-jah), has come out in open support of SANHA in bid to resuscitate the stinking and ruined image and reputation of the carrion vendor. Since Zubair Bayat has effectively joined the fraternity of Ulama-e-Soo’, it is imperative for the guidance of the Muslim public to state the following facts regarding this molvi of soo’:
(1) Whilst Mufti Zubair Bayat was employed in a Deeni capacity in Stanger some years ago, he was a member of the Ulama-e-Haqq, portraying sincerity and humility.
(2) During the first phase of his Deeni career, the then Mufti Zubair Bayat, had been a staunch proponent of the Haqq. He had unambiguously in a lengthy written article opposed MPL (Muslim Personal Law), and had admirably emphasized the flaws and the evil of the MPL plot. Later when he was in the initial phase of joining the Ulama-e-Soo’ fraternity, he somersaulted, became a turncoat and in true chameleon fashion began to support MPL.
(3) Whilst still a member of the Ulama-e-Haqq, this turncoat baaghi (treacherous rebel/traitor) against the Shariah of Islam, had written a Naseehat of Haqq explaining the Islamic system of Thabah (Slaughtering) in which he correctly and admirably explained the Shariah’s imperative requisites for Thabah. At the same time he criticized the haraam methods of killing of the kuffaar system.
    Being a turncoat at heart, when he abandoned the Fraternity of Ulama-e-Haqq, he threw in his vile lot with evil entities such as the riba Albarakah bank, the carrion halaalizer, SANHA, and haraam kuffaar sports activities. Having most despicably and treacherously reneged from his earlier Islamic stance regarding the Shar’i system of Thabah, he now shamelessly promotes carrion from the public platform whilst sleeping in an unholy embrace with SANHA, the Carrion Purveyor.
(4) With the backing of some wealthy persons on whose pockets the turncoat’s eyes are focused, he initiated his Darush Shaitaan organization with the sole objective of opposing the Jamiatul Ulama KZN. Hence, he seeks to duplicate all the activities of the Jamiat. He and his other colleagues of the Ulama-e-Soo’ fraternity with the aid of his wealthy backers are feverishly engaged in a plot to destroy the Jamiatul Ulama KZN.
For alerting and warning the Muslim public of the harms and dangers of following and associating with the Ulama-e-Soo’, we deemed it necessary to present the aforementioned expose’ of the Turncoat who has betrayed Islam and bartered the Shariah for the miserable pecuniary objectives of this perishable dunya.
The SANHA carrion function which the Baaghi will be gracing is a haraam gathering where females described by Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) as zaaniyahs, will also be attending. The haraam ‘special seating’ for zaaniyah women who love to be on the streets, is a shaitaani canard to dupe stupid people and to trick them into believing that the haraam function is an Islamic event. Thus, has SANHA enlisted the Turncoat, Molvi of the Soo’ (Vile/Evil) Fraternity of satanic ‘scholars’ in a bid to Islamically legitimize its conspicuously haraam function. Women who prowl the streets to attend public functions are in fact zaaniyahs. Their satanic ‘abayas’ and the scraps of rags they dub ‘niqab’ are not an insurance against the La’nat (Curse) and Ghadb (Wrath) of Allah Ta’ala sounded by Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) for females who love the streets and public functions. These sisters should understand that they have NO business of attending a CARRION function. They are not allowed even in the Musjid for Salaat. By what stretch of reasoning – Imaani reasoning – can any genuine Muslim ever legalize female attendance at a Carrion, Haraam function organized by a Carrion Vendor and graced by a Turncoat Baaghi?



Burden of marriage on the father

The system of Modesty & Chastity in Islam

Burden of marriage on the father

The attainment of young age by sons and daughters increases the responsibility of parents, particularly the fathers, to arrange marriage for them. Besides being shy and modest, the young man and woman do not have the material-means to defray expenses of marriage. As such, the Holy Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wasallam gave suitable distinction:

“When a man is blessed with a child, let him give his child a good name. He should bring him up on sound moral grounds and, when attains young age, the father must get him married. If the father fails to marry his son and he gets involved in any sin, the father will be held responsible for it.” (Mishkat)


Another Hadeeth is particularly about the daughter: “It is recorded in the Torah that, if a man’s daughter reaches the age of twelve years and he does not get her married, any moral lapse or sin committed by the girl will be the liability of her father.” (Mishkat).

Qadha of missed Qurbaani

Q: A person did not make a waajib Qurbani one year thinking that he did not own the amount of nisaab. He instead made a nafl qurbaani. After some years he realised that he had wealth put away which would have made qurbaani waajib on him. What does he do? Will the nafl qurbaani be counted for that years waajib qurbaani?

A: The nafil Qurbaani will not be counted for the missed year’s waajib Qurbaani. He should make Qadha of the missed Qurbaani by giving the current value of a qurbaani animal to the poor with the intention of the Qadha Qurbaani.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

18 Ramadhaan 1432 – 18 August 2011

Saudi Arabia has abandoned the Shariah’s method of beginning and ending the Islamic months. It no longer goes by the physical sighting (ROOYAH) of the moon. It has forged its own calendar and decides Ramadhaan, Eid and the Islamic months in accordance therewith, not according to the command of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

The following facts are truly disturbing:
•    Ramadhaan time-tables which are distributed in Makkah Mukarramah and Madinah Munawwara this year records Ramadhaan with 29 days.
•    In previous years, the cleaners at Musjidun Nabawi in Madinah, before Maghrib informed those who were in I’tikaaf that they had to ‘pack up’ and leave because it was already decided that ‘tomorrow’ would be Eid.
The following is an article written by Mufti Muhammad Yusuf Danka, Imaam of Croydon Musjid, England:
The Saudi government has created a calendar (Umm ul Qura) for establishing the start of every new Islamic month, be it Ramadhan, Hajj or Eid. The basis of this calendar is upon the ‘birth of the new moon’ and not viewing the crescent moon with the naked eye (Ruyat Hilal) as is required by the Shariah and Sunnah. Due to this, the Saudi announcement for the new Islamic month occurs 1 day before the actual sighting of the new crescent moon. This has been witnessed for many years now.
This year (2011), the Umm ul Qura calendar has been published and they have already written that Monday, 29th August 2011 will be the last fast of Ramadhan. Tuesday, 30th August 2011 will be Eid ul Fitr. Even if there is no sighting of the moon according to the requirements of Shariah (Ruyat Hilal) in the Entire World.
Many masajids in the UK will this fact and follow the Saudi announcement on the ‘birth of the new moon’.
They will perform Eid in Ramadhan and jeopardise a fast of Ramadhan due to blindly following the Saudi announcement.
Sayidina Abu Hurairah (ra) relates: The Prophet (saw) stated: ‘The person who leaves a fast of Ramadhan without a valid Shariah excuse (being ill or on a journey), if he was to fast for his entire life, he cannot fulfil the loss of that single day of Ramadhan he missed.’ (Jami Tirmidhi/ Masnad Ahmad/ Sahih Bukhari)
The fast of Ramadhan is considered so great in Islam that if a person purposefully breaks a fast, he has to perform 60 fasts continuously as a retribution for this act. There is no other act of worship in which the retribution is so severe. For example, if one Salah is made Kadha, only that single Salah is to be performed.
We should be mindful of our Hereafter, of standing before Allah and answering for our actions, of the loss in reward and Mercy that we are gathering by following Saudi Arabias announcements blindly. Of course we should be concerned about uniting the Ummah, but it should be for the Quran and Sunnah and not be for political gains. This is a matter of worship and safeguarding a basic and fundamental principle of Islam.
May Allah (swt) grant us the ability to unite upon the Truth and the straight path and keep us firm on it, Ameen!

‘Birth of the moon’ is not the principle of the Shariah for the determination of the beginning and ending of the Islamic months. The Waajib principle is actual physical sighting. Those who follow the pronouncements of Saudi Arabia will be indulging in the heinous major sin of abstaining from a Fardh Saum (Fast) of Ramadhaan, and of observing ‘Eid’ in Ramadhaan.  Organizations which act in accordance with Saudi pronouncements should be rejected.  For the sake of some fictitious ‘unity’, the Law of Allah Ta’ala is being rejected.

Allah Ta’ala has blessed many of us with the immense bounty of wealth. This wealth is from Allah who is the Ultimate Director and Financial Overseer of our businesses and shops. It is with the Sole Permission of the True and only One Owner of a company that we are employed. It is also with His Direct Instructions that we are able to not only to have sufficient means to fill our bellies but even to have spare wealth. This article intends to guide us as to how to utilise of that spare wealth.

By nature, people, and especially Muslims are morally inclined to repay favours. There are favours done to us by an array of people. Parents do us a favour when they tend to us after we become Baaligh. It is not their responsibility to leave behind an estate or a business or a house etc. It is not their duty to get us educated and it is not obligatory upon them to support us if we are able to do so ourselves.

Similarly, we have brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts, other family and friends who in some way or the other benefitted us. In the Spiritual realm, we have Nabi Sallallahu alayhi wasalllam and other Ambiya whom we owe a huge debt to and whom our Imaan taught us to love. There are the Sahaabah Radiallahu anhum who benefitted us by their firm Imaan and immense sacrifices to propagate Islam. Today, Alhamdulillah, despite all our sins, we hold high our heads as Muslims with a distinct culture which embraces both physical and spiritual purity of the highest order.

Qurbani for oneself is Waajib. However, if one has the wealth, a person should not forget those who have left the Dunya and who are constantly awaiting gifts of Thawaab from their relatives and students etc. How happy do they not get when the Thawaab is honourably forwarded to them! How do they not treasure such a priceless gift! In Hadith it is mentioned that the deceased is more desperate for Thawaa than a drowning man for assistance. Truly forwarding Thawaab to the deceasedcan only be done by those who are loyal and who had true love for the deceased one’s.                                                                                                                  

Besides our relatives etc, there are many other personalities who we owe gratitude to for our spiritual Ni’mats of Imaan etc. and our physical well-being. Hereby follows a list of people who we can make Qurbani of a cow (seven shares) on behalf of:

Let’s reflect: How much money do we not spend on chocolates and sweets etc. a year? How much money do we not spend on beautifying our cars and our homes a year? How much money do we not spend on clothing a year? Imagine the joy of the deceased and their Du’aas when we spend a mere R1170/ for a Qurbani cow. (R170 @ 7 SHARES). For the above 12 categories of Ambiya and sainltly personalities and friends and family it would cost us a total of R14 040 for 84 shares.  Much Thawaab could be accrued and so many Marhooms made happy.

Sayyidatuna Aa’ishah (Radiyallahu Anha) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “There is nothing dearer to Allah Ta’ala during the days of Qurbani than sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of Judgment with its horns, hair, and hooves (to be weighed). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart.” (Tirmizi, Hadith #: 1493)

And then there is the added Thawaab of the truly poor eating eat. Many overseas localities are as such that they only eat meat at the time of Qurbani. In the surroundings of Goa in India there are the descendants of African slaves of Portuguese owners. They are Muslims but are so poor that they do not see meat except at the time of Qurbani. Here a share is R250/ and a cow/buffalo is R1750/.

We suggest that one makes QurbanI at home and some Qurbani for local poor people and the balance could be forwarded for the benefit of overseas Muslims.

We are prepared to assist anyone who wishes to make Qurbani overseas. Please contact Moulana Ferhaan on 082 848 6868, Basheer Bhai on 084 7199980 or brother Mohamed Bulbulia on 082 489 3939.

Nikah in the Musjid and Walimah in the Marriage Hall

Q.  My relative will be having a haraam wedding reception in a hall after the Nikah in the Musjid. I shall not be attending the wedding reception, but my parents want me to be present for the Nikah in the Musjid. What is your naseehat?

A.   The un-Islamic, haraam wedding reception is mal-oon (accursed). The people who will be attending the haraam function will also become mal-oon. Satisfying their request is not permissible.

Our practise here in P.E. at our Musjid is that we do not allow a Nikah to be performed in the Musjid if that Nikah is to be followed by a haraam reception.

It is improper to attend even the Nikah in the Musjid when it is known that the people who have gathered for the Nikah are contemplating to commit fisq and fujoor  whilst they are sitting even in the Musjid. They are making a mockery  of the Deen for having the Nikah in the Musjid. They should have their  Nikah in the accursed hall where they will be having their haraam function. You should never participate in even the Nikah. And, make known the reason for your absence. It is not permissible to obey the haraam wishes of parents. Politely refuse.


Nature of Divine chastisement for the unchaste persons


On the great Night of Ascension (Laylatul Mi’raaj) the Holy Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was made to see with his eyes the specimens of Divine punishment meted out to different categories of sinners for their respective sins.

He saw an oven full of blazing fire from which loud sounds of cries and shrieks, weeping and sobbing were being heard. Being surprised at this extra-ordinary phenomenon, he peeped into the fiery oven and was stunned to find it full of naked men and women whose lower bodies were filled with flames. The rising flames had created a kind of fiery tempest which caused the naked men and women to raise loud shrieks and cries.


In another Hadeeth the bodies of these people were raised all the way to the top of the oven, which was cone shaped, until they reached the exit and the flames subsided which caused them to drop to the bottom again.

He Sallallahu alaihi wasallam asked the controller: “Who are these people?”

He was informed: “They are all unchaste men and women who were in the habit of committing fornication and adultery in their worldly life.”

Chastity in Islam

Valuable sayings of the Holy Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam regarding Chastity
In the books of Traditions, many events have been mentioned when the Holy Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam reprimanded young persons to avoid any approach to fornication and learn to appreciate their, valuable honour and chastity. Once he Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said: “0 young men of Quraish! Guard and protect your organs. Do not commit adultery. Listen! Whoso guards his organs, he shall have his abode in Paradise.”
Haracluss, the Emperor of Rome asked Abu Sufyan Radiallahu anhu (when he visited him):”What are the teachings of the man you are so ruthlessly opposing? Abu Sufyan Radiallahu anhu said: “He enjoins prayers, charity, chastity and love and regard for close relations.”

The Holy Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said that a man who isinvited by a most beautiful, dignified woman of high status to have sexual relation with him but he refuses to commit the sin for fear of Allah, he shall be among those who enjoys the shade of the Throne of God on the Day of Judgment when there will be no other shade against scorching heat. A chaste person has been given guarantee of entry into Paradise by the Holy Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam who said; “that a person who assures me of guarding his tongue and his sexual organs, he is assured of entry into Paradise.” That chastity can attract the mercy and help of Allah is proved by a story mentioned by the Holy Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam who said: “Three men were on a journey. On the way they took asylum against inclement weather in a cave. A very heavy stone fell down and closed the opening of the cave, and imprisoning the three fellow travellers. The three travellers agreed to beseach Allah for help by inviting His attention with reference to some extra¬ordinary good deed performed by each in his life. One of them narrated that he had, for fear of Allah and for no other reason, desisted his evil desire to co-habit with his cousin girl who was extremely beautiful and attractive. His prayer was heard and the stone slipped away from the mouth of the cave and gave them an exit for escape.

The Holy Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said: “whoever wishes to meet his Lord Creator in a state of purity (from sins), let him marry a gentlewoman of good character” He also said: “To co-habit with one’s  lawful wife for maintenance of chastity was an act of charity.” The companions asked with wonder: “Does satisfaction of one’s desire call for a reward as charity?” The Holy Prophet replied: “Had he sought satisfaction through illegal means, would that not be a punishable sin? An act which saved a man from sin was certainly a deed of virtue and was worthy of reward.”

The Holy Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, ‘There will be three persons, with whom Allah, the Exalted, will not (even) speak nor will He purify them nor look on their faces with kindness. One of them will be an old man who committed adultery in old age; the second one will be a king who (despite his authority) told lies; and the third one will be a beggar who (despite his low social status) was boastful.”



Prophetic counsel in the selection of a Bride:


In the selection of a bride, the Holy Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam gave the most valuable counsel to the prospective young man for the selection of an ideal wife. He said: “A woman is sought in marriage for four qualities: her prosperity and opulence؛ her pedigree and family status؛ her beauty and graces; and finally her character, morality and faith or religious bias.” All the four conditions are worthy of consideration and there are pros and cons for each quality. A rich woman and a woman with high family background may turn out to be insolent, disobedient and rude. A beautiful woman may be self-conscious and boasting and ignoring the right of her husband. However, a woman with high character, morals, faith and knowledge will always keep in view the teachings of Islam and, under thick and thin, will prove to be loyal to the husband and run his house in a proficient manner. The Holy Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam gave the following advice for the benefit of young bachelors: “Do not marry woman for the wealth (alone) because their wealth is likely to make them arrogant.”

Similarly, pedigree and family status are not the qualities to influence a correct decision. Again, beauty and graces of a woman may become the cause of troubles and trials for the man. The Holy Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam advised: ،،Do not wed a woman only on grounds of beauty because most often their beauty may land the family in ruin.”

Good character, good morals and religious knowledge and bias are the best qualities for which a woman may be selected for wedlock. The Holy Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam advised: “You should marry women on the basis of their good religion.” A religious woman is always conscious of the rights of her husband as taught by Islam. She runs the household to the satisfaction of her husband. She is devoid of arrogance and takes pains to bring up her children on Islamic lines. She is not quarrel some, and maintains good and amicable relations with the relatives of her husband. She is liked by her neighbors for her good conduct and adds to the dignity of her husband’s house. The Holy Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said: “A man who is fortunate to have (i) a grateful heart in his bosom; (ii) a tongue in his mouth which is committed to the continuous memory of Allah; (ii) a physical body which is patient and forbearing under troubles and triais and (iv) a virtuous wife who avoids evil in every form and jealously guards the property of her husband. Such a man has been granted the best of everything in this world and the Hereafter.” Scholars of Islam have recommended that a woman of good character, morals and modesty may be accepted as a bride. Too tall, too short, ugly, very aged and given to lewdness may not be accepted in marriage.

Points of preference in selection of a Bride:

From detailed study of Traditions of the Holy Prophet and the scholars of Jurisprudence, it has become known that, good morals, good character, righteousness, religious bias are the qualities which must be preferred to other matters in selecting a bride. However, handsomeness and age are factors, which should not be lost sight of. Good character combined with beauty and graces is certainly to be preferred. The Holy Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam recommended to the young bachelors among his followers to go in for virgins for their wedlock. He said: ،؛you should marry virgin ladies because they are sweet in speech, fertile to bear many children and are satisfied with whatever is available of worldly comforts.”
